Helix Production Updates

Here you will find the most current updates to the Helix 

You can pre-order the Helix now at

Currently, we expect the first Helix Docks to ship in early 2016, most likely in March. 




Update on 10 March 2016

We spent several days over the last few weeks bouncing back and forth between the mold shop and the injection molder, making adjustments to the mold, trying, tweaking, and reworking. This is a normal part of setting up a mold for the first time, and it takes a little bit of good ol' fashioned experimenting to set up the process that will run finished parts. 

We are making a few final changes to the material that we are using to get the best results, and we hope to start running final parts once we have that finalized. 

For those of you that are interested in the process of how parts are made, we shot a few videos of the two pieces coming off of the mold. 




Update on 19 Feb. 2016

There were some delays in the tooling process that pushed back our timeline more than we thought it would. Our machinist put in quite a bit of overtime to create the tool to make the Helix, but had underestimated the complexity of the pieces involved.

We finally got word that the mold was ready early this week, and we took it down the road to the shop where actual parts will be run. Five hours of working with the tool uncovered a few small issues with the mold that we need to correct before we can get things full in swing. This is a normal part of the process that takes time and patience to work through. It's nothing unexpected, but it pushes us back on when we can actually start shipping product.

At this point, the mold is going back to the tool shop to be reworked, which may take a few days. When that's done we will run test pieces again and find out if we can use it to create the final production parts

In the meantime, we are finalizing the packaging and gearing up to be ready to ship as soon as possible, which we expect to be in March. Since we're making this product locally in the U.S., your Helix will be ready to ship the same day that it is made.

Thanks so much for your patience. We will continue to keep you posted with any new developments.



Update on 14 Jan. 2016:

We had a minor delay in tooling for the Helix, but we're still on track to start shipping on time. 



Update on 1 Dec. 2015

We have submitted the final designs for Helix to the machine shop here in Indiana that will create the tooling molds to produce Helix. This process generally takes about 6 weeks to complete. Once the tooling is finished, we can start running test parts, make final tweaks, and then enter full-scale production.  

Universal Holder Pro production updates

Check this page regularly for updates about the production of our upcoming Universal Holder Pro. This upgraded holder will accommodate the iPad Pro and other large tablets, as well as give you more options for how you use the holder. 

You can pre-order the Universal Holder Pro now at

Currently, we expect the first Universal Holder Pros to ship Mid-April, 2016




Update on 30 March 2016:

We hate to do this to you but we just received word from our factory of another short delay in the manufacturing of the Universal Holder Pro. Because of this, we have to adjust our expected ship date to mid-April. 

We apologize that things have taken so long to produce. Delays are always a part of any manufacturing process, but we had hoped that we would be shipping now instead of sending this email. 

The delay only concerns one part of the holder, so we are optimistic that this will be the last of the delays. One of the rubber pads on the holder arrived at the factory and was cut to the wrong size, so we had to re-order the pads, pushing back the schedule a few weeks. 



Update on 10 March 2016:

Things are nearing completion at the factory. As with any new product, we had to tweak the production process a few times to ensure quality, and that has taken some time.

As of now, things are running smoothly and we expect the holders to be finished, packaged, and shipped from the factory very soon. We will be shipping to you as soon as we get them.

Thanks so much for your patience!



Update on 14 Jan. 2016:

Things are coming along at our factory. The order is placed for a run of the Universal Holder Pro, along with upgraded runs of our full line of tablet accessories featuring the new holders. 



Update on 14 Dec. 2015:

 We have finalized the design for the Universal Holder Pro, and it has been sent to the factory to begin the tooling process. Once the tooling is ready, we will begin running test parts to check quality and function before final production runs.
